It might be shocking news to everyone, but Nintendo managed to ship more or less 10.5 million amiibos units. The company already announced it, thus, making this information official. The reason why many people would be shocked with the news is due to the fact that the company reported low sales of Wii U, which is the system which amiibos is originally targeted.
In order to succeed despite the poor sales performance of Wii U, Nintendo decided to go back to its drawing board just for the purpose of readjusting the original modules the company developed for amiibos.
The result of this decision is definitely a great one. As a matter of fact, the company even ended up doing more than what they originally planned to do. They were able to produce a great outcome.
The success of Nintendo with their toy-like figurines is overwhelming and unquestionable. Due to the fact that its toy-like figurines became a big hit, many people are now wondering whether giant companies, such as Microsoft Corporation and Sony Corp, will follow the lead of Nintendo. Well, with regard to this question, there is still no information on what will be the move of other giant companies in response to the success of the toy-like figurines of Nintendo.
The world is really unpredictable. What was expected to be a failure turned out to be a huge success.
